Winnipeg Jets stand pat at 2014 NHL Trade Deadline

Bruce Fedyck-USA TODAY Sports

Kevin Cheveldayoff has decided the Winnipeg Jets will stand pat at this year's Trade Deadline.

While the names on the move are more enticing than they were last year, the Winnipeg Jets ended up standing pat during this year's Trade Deadline.

Kevin Cheveldayoff announced that due to being back in playoff contention they were looking for players that could help their team contend down the back stretch.

Ultimately this did not take place before today's deadline and Cheveldayoff made note that the injury of Mark Scheifele hampered them making any trades today, especially considering they were looking at rental players for their playoff push.

In order to become a buyer -- even in terms of rental players -- you have to be willing to part with prospects and/or draft picks. This does not entirely reflect how the Jets want to build their roster for future seasons so it's understandable that the price would need to be at a premium for Winnipeg to make a move.

While it's disappointing that this roster didn't make an acquisition to bolster themselves in seasons to come, at the very least it's encouraging to know that they didn't sell futures to remain a playoff bubble team down the stretch.

The Jets did end up re-signing defenceman Mark Stuart, which we will tackle in a separate post.
